Guilty Guilty Guilty

Guilty Guilty Guilty Mums moms and mummy's Why is we feel guilty in everything we do. I love the school holidays it's currently October half term for Leicestershire and I'm having a few quiets days at home with my daughter, she's been full of cold and a little under the weather so we've not gone far, we've watched films together and snuggled on the sofa under duvets and it's been bliss.  
But I feel guilty,  guilty for not being at work, guilty for not going out, guilty for not leaving her on the sofa and cleaning, guilty for not making her walk to school, guilty for making her walk! Guilty for getting childcare while I'm working.

Song for a Fifth Child

by Ruth Hulburt Hamilton

Mother, oh Mother, come shake out your cloth,
Empty the dustpan, poison the moth,

I work really hard for my salon and that's because I put my heart and soul into it each and every day. Probably most nights too! I like to use companies that feel that way too.
Who I'd recommend. Sence Accounting Sence accounting have been amazing for me, they haven't saved me colossal amounts of money, though they have a little, or turned me into a fabulous booked keeper, I am one of those annoying carrier bag clients (sorry jane). What they have done is understood me, my business and even my family life.  They've taken away my fear of accountants and it was a huge from having a bad experience  somewhere else. I used to shake before going to see them. My fear of sounding stupid when I tell them I don't understand somethin…

The Dream Team

The Dream Team Tip Top Hair Design is now just over 11 years old, and I couldn't be happier with the salon and my new team.  We have just undergone a salon extension and refurbishment, creating a much larger working area with 4 additional styling spaces, this coincides with us taking on 2 new members of staff as we are busy busy busy.
We are also currently looking into employing or renting a chair to a nail technician.

September saw us welcome to the team Kirsty as Part Time stylist and Ellasie our Salon Assistant and Graduate Stylist. They are both assets to the team, Kirsty being almost fully booked in her first weeks in the salon.

I'm the salon owner and director, with a wealth of industry experience. I love colouring cutting and dressing long hair and love nothing more than being involved in photo shoots, whether in a contemporary style or vintage inspired.

 I  never stop thinking about my team members and clients, client care and good customer service are of highe…
